SVGA? Should be FAIL.
on December 19, 2011
Used it to connect my HP laptop to an LG 65" 3D HD television. First, right out of the box, the metal sheath protecting the pins on one end was bent, preventing it from being inserted into the female connector. The metal was a very thin and mediocre alloy, so I was able to bend it back simply using the tip of my finger.
Then I connected both ends and saw....nothing. TV indicated there was no SVGA input.
As a sanity check, I took another SVGA cable from a working desktop computer and tried it. The old cable worked beautifully and the computer desktop was displayed on the television.
Then I tested the shipped cable using a meter and discovered that 7 out of 15 pins were either not wired or were mis-wired! (All 15 pins of the old cable worked.)
Seriously inadequate quality control.
